CarPark made a late August return to the cobbled canyons of Industry City in Brooklyn for a cars and coffee meetup. The event spanned two blocks with Porsche occupying 35th St. and all others lining up on 34th. As is typical with CarPark events, there’s a few unexpected standouts that usually appear. In this case it was a trio of Ford Escort RS Cosworths, each sporting the iconic Frank Stephenson-designed lifted rear wing.
Among the survivors that turned up was a metallic blue early-60s Datsun Fairlady 1500. This model was the precursor to the Z and was sold with the same steel wheels this example has. I’ve never seen one in person before and this example was worth spending some time appreciating.
